Pakistan Announce 16-Member ODI Squad To Face Sri Lanka At Home”

To a question he said PCB has done an experiment by appointing Misbah as head coach and chief selector.

Ex-Pakistan cricket great Javad Miandad has lashed out at a section of the Sri Lanka team fraternity for their boycott of the upcoming T20 and ODI series in his country starting on September 27. These are the only 50-over matches we play this season. "Over the course of my cricketing career, I have realised there are no easy games and there are no easy opponents".

"After thorough discussions with the members of the selection committee and meticulous planning, I feel we have put together the best possible squad". Iftikhar Ahmed is a batsman who can also bowl off-spin, providing the captain with necessary bowling depth as Sri Lanka boasts a few left-handers in their ranks.

For the Inzamam-ul-Haq, Nazar, Quaid, Imtiaz Ahmed, Zaheer Abbas, Hanif Mohammad, Majid Khan, Abdul Qadir, Saeed Ahmed and Sarfaraz Nawaz Enclosures (Rs500), AH Kardar, Rajas', Javed Miandad and Saeed Anwar Enclosures (Rs1,500), Imran Khan and Fazal Mahmood Enclosures (Rs3,000) and Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis Enclosures (Rs5,000). Afridi is down with dengue fever while Hasan was ruled out because of back spasm.

Fellow World Cup team members Hasan Ali and fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi have also been left out due to poor fitness.

"The administration is repeating the same security proposal for the Sri Lankan cricketers and officials it had designed for the Pakistan Super League matches in February and March this year", a source privy to security arrangements was quoted as saying Friday. While some of the big names in Sri Lankan cricket - Lasith Malinga, Angelo Mathews and Dimuth Karunaratne among others - have refused to travel to Pakistan due to security concerns, the tour, despite the terror threat is set to go ahead.

Karachi will host all the three ODIs with the first game on September 27, followed by matches on September 29 and October 2.
